Current - NT Crime Statistics March 2024

Following consultation with the Criminal Justice Research and Statistics Unit and for transparency, the Northern Territory Government has decided to publish the March 2024 crime statistics with the following disclaimer. Since implementation of SerPro in November 2023, it has been identified that entry of the data used for crime statistics generally happens later in the investigation process when compared to the previous PROMIS system. This means that monthly data takes longer to settle and may take several months to reflect the actual numbers of offences recorded by police. For this reason, the monthly crime statistics should be reviewed with caution and will be marked as provisional until data collection is substantially complete

This dataset contains counts of offences recorded by the NT Police, categorised by offence type, time period (month), location and (for assault offences) alcohol and domestic violence involvement. Certain types of offences show strong seasonal impacts and numbers show considerable monthly variation, particularly at the regional level.

There has been a break in the crime statistics time series following November 2023, due to the implementation of the SerPro data system. This means that the statistics from December 2023 onwards should not be compared directly to earlier statistics.
